UEA students leave our campus daily for recess at Scott’s Place Park. Rain or shine, our school day will include at least 30 minutes of unstructured play time. 

After-school activity clubs will be organized on a trimester basis and available for an additional fee. 


UEA commits to the highest educational standards for all of our students. Students in third through fifth grade take ERB’s Milestones assessment three times each year to ensure that our program maintains or makes gains for each child. For first through fifth grade, students take the CTP in early May. 

At UEA, assessment facilitates communication with parents regarding student progress and ensures that we follow best practices for each individual in curriculum and instruction.


UEA’s admission process includes family interview, review of student records, teacher and administrator recommendations (where applicable), and standardized testing using ERB’s assessment. The admissions process is designed to inform families and guide UEA regarding student needs. 

Annual tuition for students in K-5 is $22,500.
All textbooks and student supplies are provided.

“I had never really been a big fan of school. Back in traditional school I always dreaded going into school. Now that I work with Upper Echelon, learning is actually fun. I love all my teachers and enjoy going to school.”
